What the heck is that?

Was looking at Bermuda on Google Maps, I have no idea why, but I saw something strange. Take a look at the picture below, what is that straight line thingy in the bay? Did they dredge that out so bigger ships could come to port or is it something else?

Good question and I am happy to help out here. That, James, is what is known as the "El Grande Straight Line In the Bay". It is a geological formation that appeared soon after Oprah tried water skiing in the bay without her bouyancy suit on. :prof: You're welcome.

I knew I could count on you to make my evening. :P
 
I guess it could be a dredged channel, but I am curious about that thing that looks like a big red arrow. It's friggin huge. Is it a big dock for the cruise ships or what? And why is it painted red?
 
more then likely its just where google stitched an image together. Sometimes you will see ghost cars or half of a person as well.

post the link to the google map itself

If you look closely you can see another faint one below the arrow perpendicular to the other one.
 
Its a bunch of old Yamaha's that riders tossed into the ocean when they heard about Hondas...Which is why it's blue :smirk:
